1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jets sweater for teddy bear/doll on: December 12, 2010 06:00:04 PM
I made my mom a teddy bear wearing a Dallas Cowboys-inspired sweater for her birthday or Mother's day a few years back and she asked if I would make a Jets sweater in the same fashion, to send to a friend. I obliged and here's the result Smiley

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Zombie doll with dangling eye :) on: December 12, 2010 05:50:24 PM
My friend Melissa is just starting out tattooing and sent me a message saying she was looking for people to build up her portfolio and to spread the word, like a walking billboard Smiley Wanting another tattoo for a long time but never having the money, I jumped at the opportunity. Still not having extra money, I proposed a trade: I get a tattoo, she gets a zombie doll. This is what I came up with. I started with a basic garter stitch doll pattern, gray body and black legs. I used camouflage yarn for her hair, which is just looped through the garter stitches randomly. I used yellow cat's eye safety eyes and crocheted a basic ball for the dangling eyeball, which I attached to her head with a row of chain stitches. Her dress is an old pair of pink striped pajama bottoms cut into strips. For the skirt I looped a strip around her waist and tied more strips around that strip. For the bust part of the dress, I just wove some of the strips to make a sort of fabric and tied that halter-style around her neck and twice around her, under her arms. Melissa loved it and I've included a picture of the tattoo she did for me. I love it and think she did an awesome job!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / i made a blanket and want to show it off! on: April 06, 2009 10:49:01 PM
I'm quite proud of this blanket. My sister is getting induced around 7 am this morning. It's her first baby and hasn't ever had to stay in the hospital overnight, so I wanted to make her something she could keep with her that would make her sterile room feel more homey. Knitting was out of the question because it's slow going when I finally get started lol. My next thought was "I'll sew something!" But I'm not a big sew-er either lol. The answer came to me while I was browsing a Joann's ad online: blizzard fleece was 50% off reg price! So I got my butt over there and bought two yards of blue and 1/4 yard orange and made my sister an Auburn University-inspired blanket. It's her favorite sports team. I didn't want to make it baby-centric because I wanted her to be able to use it all the time. Anyway, I traced an enlarged image of the schools letters, made 6 freezer paper stencils, ironed them onto the orange felt and cut them out. Then I glued them on using no-sew fabric glue and let them dry. I think it came out great. The stencils were a little fussy to cut out, especially the little triangles where the letters overlap. That's why some of the letters gap a little in one or two places. My mom loves it and wants me to make a baby-sized version to throw over the car seat Smiley

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Does anyone know where i can find a rag yarn basket pattern??? on: October 08, 2008 02:05:47 PM
My mom's birthday is the first week in november and i've been scouring the nets for weeks looking for a pattern for some fabric baskets she got when i was little. She still has them and looks for them anytime we're at a craft fair but can't find them anymore. (there aren't any good flea markets/craft fairs in michigan) I really want to make her one or two so if i can't find a pattern i guess i'll just try to figure it out on my own. Can anyone help me?
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / How do you find the url of your photo when using your cell? on: May 05, 2008 12:24:46 PM
I'm using my cell and i understand how to insert a photo into a post but how do you find the url of the photo you want to insert? Without the use of a computer. That's not an option. Thanks to anyone who can help!
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Flip flops made from duct tape on: April 19, 2008 07:18:24 PM
Recently i've been having trouble finding flip flops that accomodate my wider than average feet. I'd lost all hope of finding comfortable, affordable flip flops when i stumbled upon a tutorial on the duct tape club site. So i made some and i love them. The left one could use a tiny bit of tweaking around my big toe but they're still better than anything i've found in the stores.
